You'd like to send some complimentary tickets but first want to give the option for recipients to confirm whether they can attend. Send out invitations and make sure only those who confirm attendance receive a free ticket.
Start off by logging into your Quicket account and going to My Events >> Manage Events. Click Manage next to the event for which you'd like to send out invitations.
From the left-side menu of your event dashboard, select Guests and then Invitations.
You'll have the option to select specific settings for your invitations.
Require ticket info: if you have ticket information that is required for guests to fill out in addition to name and email, slide to YES and guests who accept the invitation will be required to fill out their ticket details before claiming their ticket.
Set expiry date: slide to YES if you need to know if guests are attending before a certain date. If set to NO, guests will have until the date of the event to select whether they are attending and claim their ticket.
First choose whether you're sending invitations to one person or to multiple people. If you're sending an invitation to just one person, you'll need to provide their first name, surname and email address.
If you're sending invitations to multiple guests, you'll want to select Many people from the dropdown menu under Guest details.
If you only want the guest to appear on the guest list after confirming attendance without sending them a ticket email, you can un-tick 'Send email.'
Note that you can only issue 200 invitations per event in your Quicket account. If your event is recurring, you'll be able to issue 200 invitations per each event in the series. To issue more than 200 invitations, you'll need to create and link a Mandrill account to your Quicket account.

You'll need to create a spreadsheet of your guests, separating each column by firstname, surname and email. Make sure there are no spaces or special characters in any fields, or you will receive an error when trying to upload the file. Save the file as a CSV (comma delimited) file, then upload the file under Step 3: Choose File.
Choose ticket amounts
Next, you'll need to indicate which ticket(s) each guest who confirms attendance should receive and how many.
You can check the delivery status of invitation emails by clicking View online or Download after you've sent your invitations.
